I'm Thankful for... Day 1

November 1, 2011

Today, I am thankful for the obvious - my sweet girls.  You always hear people say that they don't know where they'd be without their children.  Well, when I say that, I sincerely mean it.  My girls have brought me so much joy since losing Erik.  When I think that I can't bear to live another day, I get 4 little arms wrapped around my neck and the sweetest "I Love You's" in the world.  They make each day brighter - even with all the fussing and fighting - and I am so thankful that God blessed me with both of them.  I see Erik in them so much and it makes my heart smile when they want me to talk about their brother.  I hate that they were so young when he died because I don't think they remember him being here on this earth, but you better believe they will know EVERYTHING about him.

I was only 2 months old when my brother passed away and I obviously don't remember him. But I do feel like I knew him through all the stories my Mom has told me about him. My favorite is that he would get so mad when anyone wanted to hold my twin sister or I. He said we were his babies and he didn't want anyone else to touch us. That lets me know that he loved me. I have always missed having him in my life. I always wonder what it would have been like to have an older brother around. I think it is wonderful that your girls will know their brother from the stories you tell them about him.
